Ontario is expected to extend its state of emergency due to the coronavirus to the beginning of June, as retail stores were allowed to partly reopen and the top doctor suggested more restrictions could be loosened soon.

The provincial legislature will sit Tuesday and is expected to extend the province’s state of emergency to June 2, while also holding question period again.

The state of emergency is dealt with separately from the emergency orders, recently extended to May 19, which cover closures of bars and restaurants except for take-out and delivery, theatres, outdoor amenities such as playgrounds, and child care centres.

In Monday’s Daily Update, Premier Doug Ford did mention that a plan for reopening the schools is in the works and should be released next week.

“So we’re going to make it clear next week, early next week, we will make an announcement on that. Also before anyone asks, we will have an announcement on going back to school, early next week. They’re just crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s on the plan moving forward.” Premier Doug Ford
